Elizabeth Chave (1955-2012)

Elizabeth Chave, my dear friend and colleague, passed away last Tuesday morning, May 15. Beth was a vibrant person who loved to be out on the water, working in her garden, ballroom dancing, or out walking with her dogs. She worked endlessly to preserve Seattle’s building heritage through her work at the City of Seattle’s Department of Urban Conservation, providing staff support for the Landmarks and Historic Preservation Board for 25 years. The local preservation community is reeling from her loss—we will miss our beloved Beth. Our thoughts go out to her husband and family.
